- In the Imp (ITI): On first sniff, I quickly put the bottle down and walked away. I don’t know what it was about the first impression that turned me off, but the notes should have been appealing. Vetiver and really sharp lavender on second sniff. It’s overpowering.
- Wet: It’s wet, musky, and slightly moldering, which must be the vetiver paired with the musk. I get a little lavender, but it reminds me of lavender dust.
- Dry: It’s much better dried – Strong violet and musk with a hint of smoky lavender.
